    Default This fragrance is making me hungry! (not a gourmand thread)

    I thought at first I just was hungry, so I ignored it. But now it has happened every single time I have worn it.

    It isn't a gourmand.
    It isn't A*Men, 1 Million, or any other edible.

    It is frakking Aventus.

    I think maybe it is the dry birch and the smokey notes it brings forward. I swear there is a campfire trigger in my brain that says now is the time to eat grilled meats!

    I totally see where your coming from, the same thing happens to me with Riverside Drive and Thallium Black. Must be those pineapple notes. Yum!

    Certain fragrances can have those types of effect on people.

    I usually sell such fragrances as I find the effect annoying.

    I agree with Russel. That could be annoying,but heartbreaking if it's your favorite scent or at the very least you could put on a few pounds! LOL
    I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!

    The strangest food craving phenomenon ever encountered, triggered by a scent yet NOT a gourmand scent, was with Blenheim Bouquet. For some odd reason, this scent reminds me always, in a comforting, pleasant, positive, even yummy way, of a strange, yet balanced and classy association between pizza seasoning/herbs (especially oregano) and unburnt, high quality, luxury pipe /and or cigar tobacco, lurking under an apparent veneer of rather scrumptious, not excessively acidic or pungent, citrus.

    So I am not alone on this, then. I thought it was odd how this happened every time.

    Yes, but not for the sake of it being Aventus.
    Although I was amused by your reaction...
